Our bodies can't make Omega-3s but, they can be vital to good health. Cardiologist Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum joins The Doctors to explain two ways people may be able to get Omega-3s.
Dr. Steinbaum notes one way of getting important nutrients is from the foods we eat like fish (mackerel, tuna, salmon, and sardines), cod liver, flaxseed, canola oils, soybeans, tofu, and walnuts. But a recent study by Global Nutrition and Health Alliance -- which is funded through an educational grant from RB*, who Dr. Steinbaum partnered with -- found that 98% of the people tested had low levels of Omega-3s.
Many people who participated in the study, who said that they considered themselves to be healthy and that they go out of their way to be proactive about their health, said they were shocked to discover that their Omega-3 levels were “low”. Omega-3s can help cardiovascular health by supporting healthy blood flow in arteries and may support joints, eyes, and healthy skin. They are also important for cognitive brain health and are an essential nutrient for infant brain development during pregnancy.
Dr. Steinbaum says that another way to get Omega-3s is by taking a supplement. She recommends MegaRed Advanced 4in1 Omega-3 supplements, which delivers one of the highest amounts of Omega-3s available in a one-pill per day dose.
Always talk to your doctor before taking any supplements.
